ABBEVILLE, S.C. (AP) -- An 11-year-old South Carolina boy has died after his rifle accidentally fired as he climbed down from a hunting stand.

Multiple media outlets reported that John Michael Evans of Abbeville died about an hour after he was struck in the head shortly after 6 p.m. Thursday.

Abbeville County Coroner Ronnie Ashley says the boy was in a deer stand in a tree with a friend when he started climbing down and dropped his .22-caliber rifle and it fired.

Ashley says no autopsy is planned. The coroner and sheriff's deputies are investigating.
